Assignment to Hell: The War Against Nazi Germany with Correspondents Walter Cronkite, Andy Rooney, A.J. Liebling, Homer Bigart, and Hal Boyle

Timothy M. Gay believes that some glory belongs to the daring correspondents who covered the fighting in Europe against Nazi Germany. Five Americans among them are handsomely celebrated in Gay’s “Assignment to Hell” — Walter Cronkite, then of the United Press wire service; Hal Boyle of the Associated Press; Sgt. Andy Rooney of the U.S. Army newspaper Stars and Stripes; A.J. Liebling of the New Yorker magazine; and Homer Bigart of the New York Herald Tribune.
